North Carolina's recruits were shocked -- as expected -- by the firing of coach Butch Davis, but many were also steadfast in their commitments -- not as expected.
Dave Hooker of ESPN Recruiting caught up with a few of the Tar Heels' pledges, and several of them spoke about how they were committed to the school -- not the coach:
"I picked the school because of the school, because of my history with the school, not the coaches," linebacker Phillip Williamson said. "Coaches come and go. Stuff happens."
